Amory to amend trash ordinance

By Monroe Journal

AMORY – City leaders are planning amendments to the trash collection ordinance that will prohibit the use of unsightly bins and unapproved containers at the curb.
The amendment that the board will consider at its next meeting will specify bins or enclosures for trash cans and which types are approved for use.
The city’s current ordinance states that all containers are subject to inspection by the sanitation department and the superintendent may, at his or her discretion, after notice to the owner, remove non-regulation containers along with the garbage.
